    WordPress is a great open source platform and we have nothing but respect for their work but wouldn't it be nice to remove the WordPress logo from the backend and replace it with your own or even your Client's identity? There are three main locations that we will be looking at in this tutorial. First we will be working on the log-in screen, the admin Dashboard to alter the smaller WordPress ghost logo and lastly we will take a look at the footer to make a small branding change.

    Or you could use the BM Custom Login plugin.

    BM Custom Login does not cover the Dashboard ghost logo nor the footer alterations. It is a good plugin though.

    What's up with the code you posted in that article? It runs right out of the content area, stampedes across the sidebar and then exits a solid stage left. Strange!

    :-)

    ClaytonJames,

    Thanks for noticing. I was actually in the process of changing out the Syntax Highlighter. The issue was that a plugin wouldn't work because there is a lot of code not posted within the_content.

    ryno267,

    We should be editing core files in order to make WordPress all that it can be. It's these discoveries that help to push the boundaries of what WordPress can do. If you're uncomfortable editing core files then the choice is always with the end user.

    I do agree that the catswhocode article is a much smoother transition, however. Thank you for posting it.
